What personal loans does Sydney Mutual Bank offer?

New car loans

Sydney Mutual Bank’s new car loan is suitable for vehicles up to three years old with a price tag from $10,000 to $80,000. This loan is secured, meaning you tie your car to the loan as collateral in return for a competitive variable rate. Sydney Mutual Bank will still give you the flexibility to clear that debt before the final loan repayment is due fee-free. Loan terms range from one to seven years and you can access extra repayments through a redraw facility. Apart from being charged a signup cost, you won’t need to consider paying monthly fees with an Sydney Mutual Bank new car loan.

Unsecured personal loan

Don’t have an asset like a car or piece of real estate to tie against a personal loan as collateral? Not to worry, Sydney Mutual Bank’s unsecured personal loan doesn’t require one. This pick has a variable interest rate, meaning Sydney Mutual Bank could change it at any point along the loan term. While the loan term can range from one to seven years, you do have the option to make extra repayments and be debt free sooner without financial penalty. You can also access any extra repayments you’ve made via Sydney Mutual Bank’s redraw facility. Just like the Sydney Mutual Bank new car loan mentioned above, the unsecured personal loan has zero monthly fees. All you need to consider is the relatively low signup cost when you first take out the loan.

This loan took home a 2021 Mozo Experts Choice Award for Best Unsecured Personal Loan

Debt consolidation loan 

If you need to roll your multiple debts into one easy-to-manage loan, Sydney Mutual Bank's debt consolidation loan option might be exactly what you need. It comes with a variable rate, allows debts up to $40,000 and has loan terms from one to seven years. Not only can borrowers choose to make weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayments, there are also free extra repayments and redraws too. There is no ongoing service fee attached to this loan, just be mindful there is an upfront application cost. 

Green loan 

Need a loan to go green? How about an award-winning one? Well, the Sydney Mutual Bank unsecured green loan is worth your attention. This variable rate loan allows customers to borrow between $1,000 and $40,000 to fund the purchase of domestic environmentally-friendly goods or materials. When it comes to repaying the loan, there are plenty of options. Borrowers can choose to make weekly, fortnightly or monthly regular repayments as well as free extra repayments and redraws. On top of that, there are no upfront, ongoing or break costs associated with this loan. It's no wonder it took home a 2021 Mozo Experts Choice Award for Best Green Personal Loan

Sydney Mutual Bank Personal Loan
Overall 2/10
Rates are ok but speed and sense is below average.

Quite clearly cant see beyond the office chair. Applying for a personal loan half the amount of any other loan ever held with them (and clearly can afford it) but because of a few too many enquiries on credit history they take 4 whole days to deny the loan. Very slow and pathetic.

Sydney Mutual Bank New Car Loan
Overall 5/10
Too many hurdles to jump.

I tried to get a car loan from this organisation and was asked for at least 20 forms of identification and proof of earnings and savings. It took nearly two weeks with new requests from them everyday. I went with another lender and got a loan approved within 4 hours after supplying the relevant documentation. We had two very good wages. I rang SMB and told them to cancel everything.

Sydney Mutual Bank New Car Loan
Overall 5/10
Customer service slow

I wanted to pay out the loan, got a quote and then got another. I had to get it from the dealer. It turned out the dealer increased the rate and gave me a residual to keep the price down. It was 1% but how was I going to prove anything. I did expect that a high profile car distributor would be more responsible. We are helping you Peter yes but you do have your hand in my pocket. At the time the payout came around , the phone operator gave me a value I should ask for and it was at least $5000 less. Out of touch to the industry and certainly the clients.
